     Roy was born on 14 January 1894 at Alberton, VictoriaG.1 He was a student at at Caulfield Grammar School, Caulfield, VictoriaG, on 12 September 1908. Roy remained there until he left in December 1909. Looking at his record book he would have started in fourth term 1908 in year IVa with G.H. Easton as Form Master. His registration at Caulfield was 1144 and their records show that Roy turned 14 on 14 January 1908.
Roy appeared not to be the most scholarly of students coming in at regular 18th out of 20 students in his class. Roy was marked for Writing, Homework, Reading, Dictation and Spelling, English Grammar & Composition, Geography, History, Arithmetic, Mental Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Bookkeeping, Bible, Science and Physiology. With such low marks it is unlikely that he would have sat the public examinations.
It is reputed that he went home (Welshpool) and that George (Frost) followed in his footsteps but I am unable to find any record of him attending.2.
He married Jessie May Taylor on 19 June 1918 at the Presbyterian Church, Wycheproof, VictoriaG. Jessie was a Wycheproof girl through and through having been born there. At the time of her marriage she was employed as a Dressmaker.
The marriage was recorded in The Argus on Saturday 20 Jul 1918: "HULL—TAYLOR.—On the 19th June, at the Presbyterian Church, Wycheproof, by the Rev. W.W.Watts, Roy William son of Mr and Mrs T. Hull, Wycheproof, to Jessie May, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Taylor, "Raywood", Wycheproof.". The Australian electoral roll of 1921 has Roy and Jessie listed as living at Stud Road, Dandenong, VictoriaG. Roy had a listed occupation of Farmer and she of home duties.
He lived in 1928 at 23 Wanda Road, Caulfield, VictoriaG.3 He and Jessie May Taylor were divorced on 24 April 1929 at VictoriaG. Roy was the Petitioner and Jessie the Respondent. It is listed in the Indexes at the Public Records Office Victoria as Suite 493 of 1928.
The Decree Nisi was granted on 24th Apr 1929 after the judge found in Jessies favour. The Decree Nisi was made Absolute on 25th Jul 1929.

Hull; Roy and Jessie: Divorce outcome.
From references made in their divorce documents it appears that Jessie was in Adelaide at the time.
This needs further investigation. Roy was employed, at Melbourne, VictoriaG. He was a Tramdriver.. Roy appeared on the Australian electoral roll of 1936 and listed as living at 23 Wanda Road, Caulfield, VictoriaG. Roy had a listed occupation of tramway employee. Roy appeared on the Australian electoral roll of 1939 and listed as living at 23 Wanda Road, Caulfield, VictoriaG. Roy had a listed occupation of tram employee Only he and and his mother, Lydia, were listed as living here.. He left a will on 19 August 1942 at 23 Wanda Road, Caulfield, VictoriaG.
"SUBJECT to the payment of all my just debts funeral and testamentary expenses I GIVE DEVISE AND BEQUEATH all my real and personal estate whatsoever and wheresoever situate to my said mother absolutely.4


Roy William Alfred Hull died on 17 April 1943 at Alfred Hospital, Commercial Road, Prahran, VictoriaG, at age 49. His sudden death was due to a Cerebral Haemorrage complicated by Arteriosclerosis.
He had no known children.5,6 At the time of his death Roy is reported as living at at 23 Wanda Road, Caulfield, VictoriaG.6 He was buried on 19 April 1943 at Springvale Botanical Cemetery, MelbourneG. His last resting place is listed as: Joshua Jordan Lawn, Row AE, Grave 40. His obituary reads as: OBITUARY: The sudden death of Roy ("Trimmer") Hull on April 17, is announced with extreme regret. Word of this tragic happening carne as a sudden shock to all at this Depot where he has worked for almost 20 years. The deceased Comrade had performed his work as usual that day and expired at his home in Caulfield later in the clay. The internment took place at Springvale Cemetery on Monday, April 19. Many of his former workmates gathered outside the Depot to pay their last respects their deceased Comrade, and there was a good representation at they graveside. Roy Hull was a popular figure here. Always genial and friendly, he had won a wide circle of friends, and will be sadly missed. To all sorrowing relatives we tender our deepest sympathy.     

The Tramway Record; May 13, 1943; p 19.
His estate was probated on 17 June 1943 at Supreme Court of Victoria, Probate Jurisdiction; "THIS COURT DOTH ORDER that Probate of the said Will be granted to Lydia Hull [his mother] of 23 Wanda Road Caulfield in the said State Widow the Executrix named in the said Will."
The Probate papers show that he left no real estate in Victoria but left personal property to the value of Seven Hundred and eighty nine pounds twelve shillings and ten pence. This consisted of a Chevrolet Sedan [1936 Model] valued at 120 pounds; Wages of 13 Pounds 11 shillings and six pence; money in hand of 10 shillings; and Money in in the State Savings Bank and the Commonwealth Savings Bank of 655 Pounds 11 Shillings and 4 Pence.

An interesting portion of his Probate states "This Grant is made upon the condition that no portion of the assets shall be distributed or paid during the War to any beneficiary or creditor who is an enemy subject wherever resident or to any one on his behalf or to or on behalf of any person resident in any enemy country or territory or in any country or territory in the occupation of the enemy of whatever nationality without the express sanction of the Crown, obtained through the Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Australia, and if any distribution or payment is made contrary to this condition this Grant will be forthwith revoked".
Was this common or even obligatory during the War or was this of his own volition.
